Text description provided by the architects. This 4 bedroom 3.5-bathroom unique beach home is the product of the client’s desires to reflect the personal lifestyles of their family. This property is located on a highly popular surf spot in Santa Cruz, CA, which is perfect for this active, surfing family of six. The design is perfectly suited to fuse together the distinctiveness of a modern home with the active beach vibe that encompasses the family.

The clients and friends of Fuse Architects decided that they wanted to act as the general contractors and build the home as a husband/wife duo with the advice and guidance of Fuse Architects and other subcontractors. The clients never having built anything before, did a great job in helping this vision come to life. Some unique features of this home include a dropped ceiling above the kitchen.

This area acts as a family/kids loft, and adds a one of a kind touch to this home. The outside area of this home has a beautiful outdoor shower area for after a long day of family surfing. The stunning views from the balcony and kitchen area bring the beauty of the Santa Cruz beaches into this gorgeous modern home. All of the materials came together flawlessly to create a warm yet modern feeling home.
